    Posthumous conception. What do you think?

    I guess we'll agree to disagree. I see the posthumous donation as a way to honor the husband, not to "force" him into parenthood without his consent. Guess this is one more subject to bring up when discussing wishes in case of catastrophic or fatal illness.

    Posthumous conception. What do you think?

    But the person is dead.......how does having a child harm him in any way, shape, or form????

    Posthumous conception. What do you think?

    I think by virtue that they were trying to conceive, the husband gives his implicit consent for the semen extraction. To look at it another way, if the wife could give consent for organ donation, than she can give consent for this too. And if my husband wanted to extract my eggs after my death, so he could have a child that was part of me, I would be highly honored.

    Posthumous conception. What do you think?

    I think this decision rests with the wife and nobody else. I know plenty of single parent families where the the child is loved, cherished, and their needs are met. There are all different types of families, not just the conventional husband and wife. We're all entitled to our opinions, but no one has the right to deny this woman her late husband's child.

    My latest rescue..

    Feliway is a great product. My sister used it with her cats and it made a big difference. One of my cats, Brady, had a lump that was round and hard on the inside of his right back leg. I was prepared for the worst, but it turned out to be a fluid filled cyst. I had it drained a few times, but it just fills back up again. Now I don't bother. It gets to a certain size and then doesn't get any bigger. I hope the same for your Goose. Please let us know how things turn out.

    Should Marijuana be legal?

    Oh, Michael, I am so sorry....what a horrible tragedy. I am not sure how I feel about legalization for everyone. In some respects, I think alcohol is much worse and in the U.S., is responsible for more fatal accidents and domestic abuse incidents than drugs. But...I do fear use of marijuana can lead to harder and more dangerous drugs for some people. As far as cancer, AIDS, and other critical illnesses are concerned, I think these patients should have access to whatever treatments improve their quality of life. If smoking pot eases their pain, lets them take in nutrition, etc., then I'm all for it.

    Mother who withheld medicine guilty of attempted murder

    In the years since this story first broke, it has been said that the mother willingly had this child go through all the inpatient treatment and chemo, only to stop the outpatient treatment when he got home. At the time he was discharged, he was still given an 85-90% chance of a cure. I don't know how much the boy was suffering from side effects at this time, but I don't completely buy the mother's story that the treatment was so bad that she couldn't watch him go through it. After all, he still had a very good chance of survival. That being said, none of know what was really going on with her, or what her mental state was. Having a physically and emotionally challenged child must be so hard, but it doesn't mean his life wasn't worth saving. I think what she did was wrong, but I have trouble seeing her as a calculating cold blooded murderer. But I could be wrong. It's just a tragedy for all involved.

    Mother who withheld medicine guilty of attempted murder

    This case is so sad. There are no winners here. I've been following this situation for a couple of years, as this family is local to me. The father had been trying to get custody for a while before he actually won, and there were many reports in the media that the mother really was not capable of caring for this child due to her own mental health issues. It seems that the father did everything he could for this child once he obtained custody, but it was too late. Tragically, this father was killed in a motorcycle accident 9 months after the child's death. I don't think putting the mother in prison for 20 years gives justice to anyone. It's a tragedy no matter how you look at it.
